Any British sci-fi fan will be more than familiar with the cult BBC series, Red Dwarf. Now in its 10th season, with a new one expected later this year, the show has been entertaining us since 1998 as we follow the adventures of Lister, Rimmer, Kryten and Cat as they drift around space trying to find a way back to earth. Helping them on their way is Holly, the ships onboard computer, played (in series 1,2,7 & 8) by comedian, and all round legend and lovely chap, Norman Lovett. Known for his deadpan and dry sense of humour, he quickly become a fan favourite and one of the series’ most recognisable faces (literally) and we were lucky enough to catch up with him at this years Optimus Film & TV Convention down in sunny Torquay.
After having a brief chat with him about bands/singers he likes, and knowing his cast mate Craig Charles does DJ sets, we thought we would chat music and find out what a Norman Lovett DJ set would be like. What tunes would he play? What would his DJ name be? Who would win in a DJ battle between him and Craig? Is ‘Don’t Speak’ by No Doubt too slow for a club? All these questions and more are answered in our exclusive interview!
